Well played WG. Remove the 20-pdr on the regular Caernarvon and replace with 32-pdr and "old" Centurion turret, but then "re-introduce" the pre 9.20.1 Caernarvon as a premium tank.

Other than that, this should've been something WG do more, introducing more tier VIII premium tanks for each tank branch, rather than spamming more Russian and German premiums. 

The spaced armor is an odd feature imo. I didn't realize the CAX turret was a HEAT magnet.

A pretty good tank.

Solid turret, -10 dep, great speed, one of the best dpm.

 

Too bad is going to be overshadowed by just how over the top bonkers the new Caern will be.

looks old, but with new spaced armor

Meh. With new it would make sense. With old isn't this just the old Caern? What's the difference?

the difference is that this is the only way to experience the pre 9.20.1 Caern for newer players (who have spare cash to spend). Many probably didn't realize that the Caern used to have that Centurion turret before it was switched to the Action X turret, and now its back to the old, tougher Centurion turret.

It's actually not the "old, tougher Centurion turret", gladly. It's a new, tougher Centurion turret, plus it is really tougher this time, not just that "little bit tougher than the Cent I turret" which it used to be.

And this is not the "old Caern" either. The old Caern is slow and weakly armed, this new version is actually fairly mobile and got the DPM-upgrade the Caern always needed. Imo, this looks like a fairly promising prospect. It won't be a 252 or Patriot, but it should hold up nicely in it's role.

let's not forget one of the main goals of such a premium tank is that of a crew trainer for the respective branch, and also that it closely reflects the playstyle

sorry FV4201 (A45)

just give the A45 the 4.5 inch gun, the buffed Centurion turret and buff top speed to 34.3 and bump it to Tier 8. Historical and competitve.

On thing which would help the A45 a great deal is if they gave it 10 degrees gun depression across the entire front instead of the 8 it currently has. IRL it was only 8 over the machine gun blister, while the rest was 10.
